PLant For Bees Too, please!

al_compostMay 5, 2006

Dear Friends,

Can't believe the news today, 60% of butterfly population has gone away. Bees are few & far in-between too. PLant for bees, please; if they havn't almost completely died off yet, like in SW Washington.I mean this all so sweetly. Listen to me all completely. This problem is not so neatly. Let's act before they're gone all around. I thank you all from the ground.

Let's make it better place for animals one backyard at a time.

DEar animals lovers,
I found that small masses of Oregano herb & Gaillardia will feed many bees. These forbs to easy to kill by overwatering. They are drought tolerant.

Quite Worried,

My garden is full of plants that bees love. The problem is that there are just not as many bee keepers as there used to be. Because of the mite problems there are also rarely feral hives like there used to be. When I see honey bees in my yard I am always thrilled.

Yes, for the pollenators and all beneficials. No chemicals one backyard at a time.(I do not poison the front yard either)
We DO need the bees!
